Dropped my remote, after that, would not work. Tried a new remote, didn't work either, but worked on another tv. Could there be something wrong with the infrared on the tv that picks up signal from the remote.

Re: Remote does not work
Most likely since you dropped the remote than it stopped working, It is most likely the remote. Some universal remotes say they have the code for your television but they do not. Because lots of different manufactures make televisons under different names. Try a better universal. If it does turn out to be the piece in the television, You will probably have to have it serviced by a professional

If sound works from a video the audio circuit is ok--leaves only that something in TV mode is set wrong---possible but not real likely a headphone jack issue or in menu set may have a feature for turning speakers off in that mode or look to see if set has the SAP mode on the remote.
If using a box of some kind issue can also be coming from it.
If no remotes work it is likely the remote receiver (ifrared and at front of set) is either dirty (lens) or bad.
A hint here is try original remote right up against the receiver--if works receiver is bad.
Note: original remote can be tested by a shop or even with most digital cameras--in a dark room the remote pointed at the camera and the lcd display will flash faintly when buttons on remote are pressed.
Something is wrong..crbr799 your DVD-TV has a TV-DVD button on the right front to switch from TV to DVD play...OPEN button on left side ,place DVD in tray, close & press PLAY... I something simulator that needs the remote control for the SPECIAL functions....by the way the ORIGINAL r\c is $135 to $155, a replacement ($35) will turn the TV\DVD on ( which you can do without the r\c) and NOT function with anything else. P.S. they will try to sell you universal r\c that work with the CABLE boxes, the ones that you pay a monthly fee!!
have gfm 26" hdtv. remote was dropped on tile floora and no longer worked. no universal remotes will work - not even gfm's. went to remotes.com on the web. orig. remotes no longer mfgd. replacement unit is $39.95. worked right out of the box. batteries were in the unit. no muss, no fuss, no codes.
There is a $5 remote at Walmart that I know works for this Tv combo. You have to use the code search which cycles through 300 codes and I believe the one that works is the very last one. It is a GE remote that they usually have stashed by the checkout counters. & I believe you have to program each device on the tv individually.
If the remote sensor cover is missing on the TV, the remote would still work but you may get other effects like the TV changing channels on it own. This is due to stray infra red signals. If it's not working at all I would suspect the remote control handset. You can test it by pointing it at a digital camera lens and watching the display screen on the camera. You should see white light comming from the remote when you press any of the buttons if it's working. Digital cameras can see infrared.
